Color fontis entitled '"views from the tesseract" with many black and white illustrations. Charles Howard Hinton (1853 – 1907) was a British mathematician who is most widely remembered for the invention of the word "tesseract", a four-dimensional analogue of a cube. His works focused on methods of visualizing the geometry of higher dimensions. This is a serious study of the idea of a fourth dimension, founded in mathematics and geometry. Originally published in 1904, this listing is the second printing which soon followed in 1906.
